  • Make Holiday Guests More Comfortable with 3M

     In Energy Savings, Security

    With Halloween around the corner, it is not long before the holiday season will be here. In fact, some have already started their holiday planning. Pinterest reported in June of this year that holiday searches surged 77 percent in April 2020 over April 2019. There also was a 90 percent increase in Pinterest searches for “holiday recipes” and an 80 percent increase in searches that involved the term “Christmas.”

    The earlier focus on the holiday season could be due to the pandemic. People are looking forward to merrier moments and spending time together. According to Inmar Intelligence, smaller gatherings may be the norm this holiday season as friends and families look to avoid large crowds and travel. This could mean more cookie exchanges, Friendsgiving events and holiday brunches at home. Some may even find themselves hosting holiday guests for the first time.

    In preparation of the winter holidays, make your home more comfortable with 3M’s window film. Sun control options can help prevent heat pockets from forming next to windows, reduce glare and help prevent fading furniture and flooring. Meanwhile, 3M’s Thinsulate™ Series may provide savings on high energy costs this season, and 3M’s safety film, on both your home and vehicle, will help ensure that you and your property are protected.

    Installed on the Outside, 3M Film Can Help Improve the Inside

    3M™ Sun Control Window Film, Prestige Exterior provides all of the benefits of 3M’s highest performing window film, only it is installed on the outside of a home. This is ideal for those concerned about COVID 19 and allowing contractors indoors.

    The film is scientifically proven to block 97 percent of the sun’s heat-producing infrared light. This can mean less heat pockets near your home’s windows and less strain on your air conditioning unit. Low interior and exterior reflectivity enhance the views from the inside while maintaining an attractive look outside.

    Meanwhile, the film also rejects 99.9 percent of UV rays, which is the leading cause of fading furniture and flooring. The film has proven to extend the life of your furniture while providing an up to 77 percent glare reduction.

    Thinsulate™ Controls the Climate Indoors

    No matter the weather, 3M™ Thinsulate™ Climate Control Window Films are designed to keep the warmth in during the winter and the heat out during the summer.

    The film provides the same benefits of a Low-E (or “low emissivity”) window at a fraction of the cost of actual replacement. This means you can upgrade your existing windows without having to buy and install new windows. With Thinsulate™ film, your single pane will act like a double pane window; your double pane window will act like a triple pane window. This helps create a steadier climate inside your home so that guests are more comfortable.

    Add Security to Your Home and Vehicle

    During the holiday season, increase the security at home or on a vehicle with 3M™ Window Films.

    3M™ Safety & Security Window Film has proven to slow home intruders down by up to two extra minutes, allowing additional time for emergency officials to respond. This is because the film holds together the shattered glass after impact, preventing flying glass shards from damaging people and property and allowing instant entry.

    3M™ Scotchshield™ Automotive Security Window Film creates a barrier on your vehicle’s windows that will slow a thief from breaking an entry. The film is available in all tint levels and can block up to 95 percent of visible light to provide increased privacy and protection of your valuables.
